  1. Cornell is an outstanding school. Why are you jealous of higher education? Education is the antidote to stupidity and ignorance. Oh wait, that's why you're afraid of education. You and your fellow trumpettes. And before you again claim to be a libertarian, read this. You are on record as anti-choice and have stated that abortion = murder. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Libertarian_perspectives_on_abortion#:~:text=The 2012 political platform of,person for their conscientious consideration."
  2. The comment was filed by Indiana AG. A Big Lie guy. https://hillreporter.com/indiana-attorney-general-pushes-big-lie-on-election-fraud-in-valentine-post-92985
  3. @cedros How did they validate it? Did they print the RFC form for you?
  4. All they did was make up a phony number. The only people who can issue an RFC is SAT.
  5. Vegetarians don't eat eggs because they do not want animals raised for human products. Vegetarians will not wear leather shoes, also for this reason. They do not believe that Bruno Magli shoes have a heartbeat.
  6. The Buffalo guy cited Replacement Theory---that is right wing crap---way to the right! https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/buffalo-supermarket-shooting-suspect-posted-apparent-manifesto-repeate-rcna28889
  7. 15 years ago Obama nailed it. "they cling to guns or religion..."
  8. As a recent arrival on a resident visa, you had to prove sufficient income or assets to be approved. One reason for that is to ensure that you have the means to pay for your medical care here, or to fly back to US and use your Medicare, or buy Mexican private insurance or buy an evacuation insurance plan. Mexico has raised these income and asset requirements partly to weed out medical refugees who may become a burden to the state.
  9. @Mainecoons You add nothing to the conversation other than your ignorance and prejudice.
  10. Local references? Registered and vetted through any online agencies? History of housesits in Mexico?
  11. Medicare A and B pay nothing abroad. Some Medigap plans will pay Emergency Only during first 60 days of travel outside US, with substantial deductibles and limitations, and by reimbursement only. Advantage plans will pay Emergency Only but you cannot belong to an Advantage plan if you do not live in US for at least six months each year. This article explains it well. https://www.pbs.org/newshour/economy/retiring-abroad-what-medicare-plan-should-i-get "Medicare generally does not cover medical expenses outside the U.S. First off, Medicare generally does not cover medical expenses outside the U.S. There are limited exceptions for people living near the Canadian or Mexican borders. Medicare may cover them for emergency care if they can document that going to a non-U.S. care facility was a medically appropriate decision. There also are some situations where Medicare will provide coverage to someone on a cruise ship near U.S. waters. People with Original Medicare, Parts A and B can get a Medigap policy (also known as a Medicare supplement plan) that provides coverage of emergency medical expenses outside the U.S. Medigap plans are regulated and sold at the state level. According to UnitedHealthcare spokeswoman Sarah Bearce, you need to be a resident of a state when you first buy a Medigap plan. After that, if you moved outside the U.S., your Medigap plan would continue in effect so long as you paid the premiums. However, she notes, only Medigap plans C, D, F, G, M and N have foreign travel coverage, and there are restrictions: “The foreign travel benefit covers 80 percent of ‘foreign emergency care that begins during the first 60 days of a trip period’ after a $250 annual deductible, and it has a $50,000 lifetime maximum. This benefit likely wouldn’t be useful if you permanently live outside the U.S.” Medicare Advantage plans are more restrictive. “To be eligible for a Medicare Advantage plan,” Bearce says, “your permanent address, as on file with Social Security, must be in the plan’s service area. If you signed up for a Medicare Advantage plan while in the U.S. but then relocated overseas, the plan would be required to disenroll you after you were out of the plan service area for six months.”
  12. No surprise that bobby brown supports the Big Lie and is allowed to post about politics, despite this forum's policy not to. @chapala @moderator5 @moderator-2
  13. Still as noisy as El Serape was, and very little parking. The owner suggests you park at next set of businesses but that's a bit cheeky, especially since one is a medical supply store where many need that adjacent parking due to our infirmities.
